PETMAN is connected to the Pentagon and to the U.S. Defense and Research Agency. It is developed by Boston Dynamics robot. Petman is 175 centimeters long and weighs 80 kilograms. U.S. robotics design and engineering firm Boston Dynamics has been working on it for the last 3 years.
The high-tech hydraulic robot can move in when a male soldier is physically unable.Of course, the PETMAN could use prosthesis of its own, since it still doesn’t have a head. Even the Octavia robot developed for the Navy has a cherubic face built out of white plastic. The PETMAN’s remorseless flashing red light atop its shoulders is anything but soothing. Which points to another potential use for the robot: scaring the hell out of an enemy.
